"He said to me, 'I just want to be very clear, I'm not proposing to you because of this diagnosis,’” Jaouad recounted to E! News. “‘It's taken me a year to design your ring. So, just know this timing has nothing to do with it. But what I do want you to know is that this diagnosis doesn't change anything. It just makes it all the clearer to me that I want to commit to this and for us to be together.’ But once we realized we had this tiny window before the bone marrow transplant, we decided to go for it."
When they swapped vows, the New York Times bestselling author was wearing a hospital gown in an operating room. Although it wasn’t the wedding they envisioned, they couldn’t imagine a more meaningful moment. “There were maybe four people present” she told E! News. “It was private. It was tiny. And it was perfect.”
Since the singer wasn’t present for his wife’s transplant, he wrote her a lullaby. "The darkness will try to overtake you," he said. "But just turn on the light. Focus on the light. Hold on to the light."
